Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Asgardians of the Galaxy #1 (Marvel) – A tie-in to the current Infinity Wars event, this comic brings together a rag-tag group of Asgardian warriors. The reason is ok but it’s the personalities and a reveal at the end that’s the real driver here.

Berlin The Complete Edition (Drawn & Quarterly) – Collecting Jason Lutes masterwork looking at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens. It’s a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

Border Town #1 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – Kicking off the new direction of Vertigo that’s a return to the edgy social conscious comics of old. The first issue is absolutely fantastic and a must get. A horror comic with monsters you don’t normally see.

Bully Wars #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Skottie Young. That alone has us sold. The series focuses on high school bullies with art by Aaron Conley.

Captain America #3 (Marvel) – A fantastic relaunch of the series focused on the role of Captain America in modern society.

Cover #1 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – The fact this is a new Jinxworld title has us intrigued to check it out.

Dark Ark #10 (AfterShock Comics) – Cullen Bunn is a master at horror and this series mashes that genre up with the Bible. So good.

Death of the Inhumans #3 (Marvel) – We admit we were skeptical when we first head about this miniseries but so far each issue has been solid with no issues murdering off long time characters and creating a threat that feels very real.

Dr. Stone Vol. 1 (VIZ Media) – We’ve read it, we love it. Basically, everyone in the world gets turned into stone and a few wake up thousands of years in the future. Where do you go from there?

The Dreaming #1 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – The Sandman Universe takes off with this debut issue. We had mixed feelings about the teaser comic but we’re excited to check out more.

Thanos Legacy #1 (Marvel) – A piece of the master cosmic plan Marvel has going on.

Transformers: Lost Light #23/Transformers: Optimus Prime #23/Transformers: Unicron #4 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers universe is finally coming to an end point and these three series are taking us there. What’s on the other side, we have no idea.

United States vs Murder Inc #1 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – We remember the first volume when it came out and it was a nice spin to the mob story.

The Walking Dead #183 (Skybound/Image Comics) – The introduction of the new community has given the series a shot in the arm and opened up a lot of posibilities. Where is it goign? We have no idea and can’t wait.

WWE NXT Takover: Blueprint #1 (BOOM! Studios) – If you’re a fan of the WWE, this one is a must get.
